Not sure about this stamp...thoughts?I think forgery, paper is white and the margins off, not to mention the miscut.

Well, not a forgery, but this is a reprint and (probably) printers waste. The reprints have vignettes with heavier shading lines (and I think heavier shading in the frames) and the color is a strong black rather than gray black.

Original:

Thank you. Do they have any value? Interesting story behind the stamp either way.

Have a bunch of this Scott unlisted set, with apparently some originals and reprints. Selected a few so folks can see how they look side by side, can see the differences mentioned by hy-brasil and rod222. Not so clear in the scan, but paper is definitely whiter on the reprints.

Original on left, reprint on right.
